Description: I saw the same thing only it was higher up and on a crystal clear day with a bright blue sky. I was in Kirkland, WA (Seattle area) at my nephew’s house. I recorded it in 2 different sittings and I observed it for a good 10 minutes before it disappeared. I have pictures and videos. I forgot to mention that I spotted it on Tuesday, 7/18/2017 at 5:27 PM PDT.
Additional Information Supplied by Witness: Witness and his nephew were outside and saw the object. The witness then grabbed his cell phone and shot 3 videos and a photo. He is familiar with drones and knows others who are “expert” in the field of drones. All concur that the object was not a drone. The witness also stated that one his video clips show the object making a sudden movement downward and to the left. A view of the footage and slowed speed does show that the object may have moved. (This clip is not shown in this report.) The witness was facing east when he shot the videos and took the photo.
Note: The witness is referring to the sighting of a bright object hovering over Seattle, WA on April 24, 2017. The object is quite likely not the planet Venus. Venus was only 8 degrees above the horizon at the time of the sighting. Also the object disappeared in 10 minutes and was high above the horizon. A weather balloon was launched from Quillayute in Northwest Washington at 5 PM. However, the winds aloft would not have transported the balloon over the sighting area. Therefore the object was not a weather balloon. Also I don’t believe that the object was a high altitude balloon because these balloons generally are suspended at a constant height and are generally airborne for several hours. The object vanished in 10 minutes.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
